The Genoa Years

Franco Cardini - Michel Balard - Giuseppe Felloni - Arturo Pacini - Carlo Bitossi - Giovanni Assereto - Bianca Montale - Sergio Luzzatto - Antonio Gibelli



Nine great historians recount the years and the men who changed the history of Genoa and the world.

From the crusades to the treaty of Ninfeo, from the foundation of the Bank of St. George to the Fieschi conspiracy, from the challenge to the kingdom of France to the heroic popular uprising against the Austrians, from the revolt against the Savoy family to Mazzini’s funeral…right up to the debate on interventionism on the eve of the first world war.
